Why I Believe:
The
Resurrection
"Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the
grave shall hear his voice, and shall come forth; they that have done good,
unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the
resurrection of damnation"
[John 5:20,21]

The world marvels at the idea of a resurrection of the dead. It is an idea
foreign to their experience and wisdom. To the world, death is final.
However, to the Christian there is hope; there is a promise of God that life
shall once again spring with this tabernacle of dust and clay. The man of
God looks toward and longs for the time when the dead shall rise.

This hope is based upon the knowledge of the resurrection of the dead in
the person of Jesus Christ.
"For I delivered unto you first of all that which I
also received, how that Christy died for our sins according to the scriptures;
and that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the
scriptures; and that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve; after that he
was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part
remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen
of James; then of all the apostles, and last of all he was seen of me also, as of
one born out of due time"
[1 Corinthians 15:3-8].

Is it unreasonable to accept such as truth? There were over 500 eye
witnesses of the fact. There is no court in the world which would reject
evidence from so many eye witnesses. There is no scientific community
which would disregard so great a witness to a singular phenomena
occurring on any other subject. We accept eye witness testimony on the
fact that George Washington lived, why not on the resurrection of Jesus
from the grave? It is not unreasonable, but the only reasonable
alternative.

Therefore, marvel not, "there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of
the just and unjust" [Acts 24:15].

It is the hope which is yours if you will come to Christ Jesus in faithful
obedience [John 3:16; 1 Peter 1:22; Acts 17:30; Romans 10:10; Mark 16:16;
Acts 2:38; Revelation 2:10].
